Inflation and space
Facing the possibility that our country's astronomical inflation rate
may be eroding future space exploration, University Atmospheric and
Oceanic Science Department and noted scientist Dr. Thomas Donahue
is urging his colleagues to start "beating the drum" to save the space
program in the name of inflation. Donahue, a member of the research
teams working on the Pioneer-Venus and Voyager projects, said he
fears the space program could be a major victim of government spen-
ding cuts. "There are no new starts in fiscal 1980 in the NASA
(National Aeronautics and Space Administration) budget," he said.
"This is only the second time that's happened since NASA started. I
think we who are doing the work in space science should be out beating
the drum and making a lot more fuss about the impact of the economy
on the space program." Donahue said the space program has "an
image problem" but he added that the problem is not based on waning
public interest. He cited the sustained popularity of science-fiction-
movies as evidence that the public is intrigued by "what's out there."
Quick, Someone call NBC
When someone says Olympics, most people think of track and field,
swimming, or skiing. But a group of die-hards at Couzens Hall are
starting a new event-the first annual pinball olympics. Members of
the group are so devoted to the hobby that they feel ready for com-
petition, and, finding none, have decided to create their own. The
event is scheduled to take place at 3 a.m. Saturday, because that is the
only time the group could be assured of, access to the dorm's
machines. Engineering Freshwoman Ingrid Klove has been
designated "Miss Pinball" and will present the medals (each
representing a quarter) to the winning teams. A spokesman for the
event did not say whether the winner would be invited to Lake Placid
or Moscow.
Take ten
The Black Students Union (BSU), in a letter presented to then
University President Robben Fleming on March 16, 1969, called for the
suspension of publication of The Daily pending a proposed in-
vestigation of its editorial policies. The request came principally in
response to endorsements of Student Government Council candidates
made by senior editors that week. The editors had listed Council can-
didateDarrylGorman, a black student, as "unacceptable" for an SGC
at-large seat. BSU members attacked the "undemocratic"
nature of the Daily's editorial policy and claimed the paper had
misrepresented BSU actions. A Daily editor said that the paper cannot
reflect the views of all students.

It was commonly believed that "dirty old men" comprised the
majority of the audiences at porno flicks. But recent studies at Drexel
University and the University of Maryland have proved this belief in-
correct. According to the studies, the majority of male porn theater
frequenters are 21 years-old or less, well-educated, and married. One
might assume that if they weren't well-educated when they went in,
they certainly were when they left!

Greenpeace: One seal
saved is success

ST. ANTHONY, Newfoundland
(Reuter) - Seven members of the
Greenpeace Foundation protesting
against this year's seal hunt began
leaving here yesterday, claiming
modest success - they saved the life of
one baby seal.
Wednesday Greenpeace member Ed
Chavies flew to the ice floes off the
Labrador coast where hunters are
killing seals at the rate of 10,000 a day
and marked one pup with green dye to
make it worthless to the hunters.
"IT'S LIKE A shipwreck. If you save
one crew member, it makes it all wor-
thwhile," Greenpeace spokesman John
Frizell said yesterday in summing up
this year's protest actions.
Detroit-area seal supporters have
scheduled a "save the seals" rally for
today at noon in Kennedy Square. Ann
Arbor Greenpeace has arranged for bus
transportation to the rally leaving at
10:45 a.m. from the Michigan Union.

where the hunt is so heavily protected
that the kind of things we are doing are
becoming impossible," he said.
Last week in a separate area of the
hunt, members of the New York-based
Fund for Animals managed to spray
dye on about 250 seal pups under cover
of darkness before they were arrested.
But scores of thousands of seals
remained to be killed. Protesters say
they know they cannot physically
disrupt the hunt, but they hope their ac-
tions will mobilise opinion in favor of
their cause. f
GREENPEACE is switching the
focus of its campaign away from the
hunt and towards persuading people not
to buytthe furs, Frizell said.
Another change in approach is that
Greenpeace no longer claims that the
seals are in danger of imminent extin-
ction because of the hunt, he said.
However, Greenpeace disputes the
Canadian government's claim that the
quotas set for the hunt each year allow
for a slow growth in the seal population.
NOT ENOUGH is known about the
seal's complicated life cycle to allow
"safe" quotas to be set, conservation
groups argue. Frizell said Green-
peace's main objection to the hunt was
that it was a "visible symbol that man
cannot live in harmony with fellow
A bizarre feature of this year's cam-
paign has been the appearance of a
spoof protest group called Codpeace
that has poked fun at Greenpeace by
advocating that codfish should be
protected from the "savage" seal.
A Codpeace member, Clarence But-
ton, flew to the hunt yesterday where he
appeared on the ice wearing a tuxedo
and top hat and carrying a rolled um-
Aside from the humor, Codpeace
argues that Greenpeace pays too much
attention to one animal, the seal, at the
expense of other creatures.
"Obviously we can't save every
animal. We have to start somewhere."

Frizell said the protesters faced
enormous odds this year in the form of
restrictions imposed by the Canadian
FOR EXAMPLE, a permit to visit the
hunt was given -only to Chavies, and
that permit was revoked immediately
when he applied the dye to the fur of the
seal pup.
Greenpeace did not want to break the
law further, and Chavies flew back to
Greenpeace's temporary headquarters
in this small community on the nor-
thern tip of Newfoundland.
Frizell noted that Mr. Chavies was
escorted by two federal government of-
ficials the whole time he was on the ice.
Police and other officials were also
standing by in case of trouble.
